AUDI WANTS TO TURN DRIVERS INTO PASSENGERS, BUT WILL THE GOVERNMENT ALLOW IT?

Legally, autonomous cars are crippled by enough red tape to wrap the sun like a big, fiery Christmas present. Mirko Reuter, Audi’s head of autonomous driving functions, told us the major sticking point in the United States is that there’s no general law that regulates autonomous cars. Currently, the only state that allows private autonomous cars on public roads is Florida. Test vehicles are authorized in numerous states, including California, but those regulations were put in place for big companies evaluating prototypes with a permit, not for John Jones nonchalantly commuting to work.

The story is largely the same on the other side of the pond. In spite of its innumerable promises of legal uniformity, the European Union lacks a general law for the operation of private autonomous cars. As of writing, they’re only allowed on German roads. The situation is even murkier in China, where they’re neither allowed nor banned.

In other words, even the brightest minds in the automotive industry aren’t able to put a world-class autonomous car in the hands of consumers because they’re not allowed to. An Audi spokesperson told us the Traffic Jam Pilot technology will gradually be introduced where it’s permitted starting early next year. That will hopefully include the U.S., but nothing is certain yet.

There are no two ways around it: sooner or later, autonomous technology will become legal in America. And, for Audi, the new A8 is a stepping stone on the path to full automation. The changes will come fast, too; there is a bigger gap between level two and level three than between level three and level five, according to Mertens.

“Our future cars will manage traffic in the city as well as on the highway all by themselves. They will leave it up to you to drive or be driven,” promised Audi CEO Rupert Stadler.
